Those members who live in the Parish will be familiar with the monthly seasonal notes on gardening that appear in the Parish Magazine Basinga. They make entertaining reading and contain many useful tips on the cultivation of gardens and vegetable plots.
They are written by Basinga Editor Irene Allaway, who has very kindly consented to their reproduction on our website.
We hope members who receive the Basinga will nevertheless find it useful to have the articles available for reference online and those members outside the Basinga catchment area will enjoy reading the articles for the first time.

I have just uploaded the December 2014 Gardening Notes from Irene Allaway. Sad to say, they are the last. As you may know Irene has stepped down as Editor of the Basinga after nearly 40 years. A remarkable achievement by any standards and as fine and selfless an example of public service as you are ever likely to see. I am going to leave the 2014 set of Notes on the website as a permanent tribute to Irene. The advice will remain relevant and her weather observations will be an encapsulation of a most unusual year. We wish Irene well for the future.
